We all wish the best for our besties, and itâ€™s great to hear good news from the folks we care about. Likewise, if somethingâ€™s going wrong in your friendâ€™s life, you definitely want to know where to send flowers or whose butt to kick. But if you only get one set of news or the other, you might be being used.
Whether someone is dumping to brag or dumping because theyâ€™re sad, if itâ€™s unbalanced, itâ€™s uncool. In either extreme, theyâ€™re treating you more like an audience member than a platonic partner and that just doesnâ€™t work. Oversharing good news can make someone feel better if those around them arenâ€™t rising to the same heights, and always being a Debbie or Donald Downer can get someone tons of attention â€¦ that they donâ€™t have to give back.
